“Intelligence without ambition is like a bird without wings.”– Salvador Dali
Call upon the hawk spirit with this craft to gain clarity and perspective.
Once Upon A Time
there were beautiful, bold women of the north called Valkyries. These legendary shape-shifters were ever present on the battlefield to carry the souls of fallen soldiers to the Hall of the Slain (Valhalla).
Upon hearing the rumour of war, they would magically transform into hawks, swoop down onto Norse battlefields and slip into enemy lines. Their power lies in determining the ultimate fate of slain soldiers. Will they live, or join the all-powerful Odin in Valhalla? Only the Valkyries can decide who will return to the Norse ‘homeland’.
Hawk teaches us to elevate our perspective, and see all of the dynamics at play. Once you have a clear vision, focus those hawk eyes on your target. When the timing is just right, swoop down and go after your soul’s calling with courage and fearlessness.
Hawk also teaches us to trust our natural impulses and intuition. If it gives you exhilarating butterflies, just to do! I’m sure the ride will be unforgettable.
